About the Imaging Science Foundation (ISF)

Since 1994, the Imaging Science Foundation has trained over 5500 video professionals to be ISF certified calibrators, and they have become the definable top service providers in their markets. 2011 represents a milestone for ISF. Our manufacturing partners will now deliver significantly advanced ISFccc calibration capabilities in well over 10 million HDTVs per year, and we have launched LEVEL II training for advanced calibration on these new features. All sessions now incorporate LEVEL II training for ISF certification.

Educating clients is the key to success in HDTV. ISF calibrators use test patterns and instrumentation to demonstrate, sell, and maintain video devices. With "High Fidelity Video" demos and periodic calibration services, ISF calibrators are the definable video professionals.


With the 2013 release of the HDMI 2.0(x) specification, the onset of 4K products and content, and most recently the addition of High Dynamic Range functionality, calibration has become secondary to simply getting the signal distributed. For these reasons, it is paramount to our mission of delivering the best picture possible and matching the director’s intent to the end user that we get the complete signal there first, from Source to Sink via all repeaters in the HDMI network.

Join us for hands-on training in distributing and controlling 4K60 (4:4:4) signal distribution in a multiroom dwelling. Learn and do what it takes to get the signal from a new UHD HDR player to every zone in the installation via various devices including fiber optic, HDBaseT, and HDMI over IP. You will also learn how to control these devices using third party control system brands like Control 4 and RTI while you explore and learn HDR-10, Dolby Vision and HLG video calibration on today’s latest display technologies including flat panels and projectors

Day 1: What it takes to get high value (>14Gbps) signals to the display and AVR with hands-on labs using matrices, splitters, fiber optic termination, HDBaseT, and more.

Day 2: Understanding the video food chain and basic video display setup and ISF calibration, white balance, color gamut, and front panel controls with hands-on labs using meters and generators.

Day 3: HDR completely demystified, HDR calibration, advanced calibration of HDR displays, sweeps, LUTs and more with hands-on labs.
